ISIS Takes Credit for Barcelona Terrorist Attack

NORMALCY BEFORE THE ATTACK.

There’s a simple answer to Muslim attacks in the West: Ban Muslims.

In the meantime, “thoughts and prayers” blah, blah, blah.

Hey guys, light a candle. That’ll show those mean old Muslims.

Excerpt from The Atlantic

Authorities in Barcelona are confirming 13 deaths and 50 injuries in what they are describing as a terrorist attack at Las Ramblas, the popular tourist attraction that was immortalized in George Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia.

Authorities said a van was driven onto a sidewalk and hit pedestrians. A suspect was arrested more than an hour after the incident, police said, describing the suspect as a “terrorist attacker.” Police in Barcelona said unconfirmed reports of a second attacker holed up in a bar were false.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack through Amaq, its mouthpiece—though the extent of the group’s direct involvement is not known. Although ISIS has steadily lost ground in Syria and Iraq, it maintains the ability to claim attacks in Europe, though it is unclear if the group is behind the operational planning of those attacks or whether it merely inspires its attackers through social media. El Pais, the Spanish newspaper, quoting anonymous officials identified the attacker as a Moroccan-born man named Driss Oukabir. Spanish authorities identified him as the man who had rented the van used in the attack.

Recent attacks in other European cities have been claimed by Islamists who claim they were inspired by ISIS. However, Barcelona has been the site of recent anti-tourism protests and anarchists had recently warned they would strike British tourists in Europe; Barcelona is a popular tourist destination.

Spain has had a long history with terrorism, but much of the violence was carried out by ETA, the Basque separatist group, which declared a truce in 2011. Catalonia, where Barcelona is located, is home to a powerful separatist sentiment, but that secessionist movement has not been violent. The most high-profile recent attack, however, was attributed to al-Qaeda in 2004 when near-simultaneous attacks on Madrid’s commuter train system killed 192 people and injured more than 2,000. Those attacks, which came three days before the country was set to vote in general elections, was the worst in Spanish history.

The Spanish government maintains a national terrorism alert level in response to terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere, as well as information held by its security agencies. Since 2015 the Spanish authorities have assessed the threat level as “high”, the second highest level (Level 4 out of 5). The current alert level is available on the Spanish Interior Ministry’s website (in Spanish).Although not a target of the scale of attack seen in 2004, Spain maintains its alert level at 4, the second-highest level. It has been at that level since 2015. Enhanced security measures were directed at crowded spaces, prominent buildings, and mosques, according to Euronews.

The El Pais report noted that since 2005 Spain has arrested more than 700 people in connection with terrorism convicted dozens, and imprisoned 120 people. It has also, the newspaper reported, foiled several attacks during the planning stage. But the manner of Thursday’s attack shows that despite the best preparations it’s difficult to stop a man in a truck from causing harm.

Twitter is alive tonight with a mix of the stupid and the sane:

What Evil Nazi Steve Bannon Thinks About Chalottesville

This is #1 of two posts on Steve Bannon. This one represents some things he’s allegedly said. If true, he’s smart and he’s one of us. If true, Trump is also very smart in spite of all the comments I see in the media about how dumb he is. LOL. So dumb he beat Hillary’s sorry a**.

Axios

On Tuesday night, while Gary Cohn was fuming about President Trump’s latest comments, Steve Bannon was excitedly telling friends and associates that the “globalists” were in mass freakout mode.

Today, Bannon reveled in the disbanding of the president’s business council, seeing this as yet more evidence that the Trump administration is at odds with the “Davos crowd,” as Bannon often calls these corporate elites, in a voice dripping with contempt.

Bannon saw Trump’s now-infamous Tuesday afternoon press conference not as the lowest point in his presidency, but as a “defining moment,” where Trump decided to fully abandon the “globalists” and side with “his people.”

Per a source with knowledge: “Steve was proud of how [Trump] stood up to the braying mob of reporters” in the Tuesday press conference.
This account of Bannon’s thinking has come from conversations with his friends and associates who’ve been in touch with him since the racist carnage in Charlottesville.

Bannon has not meaningfully advised the president about his response to Charlottesville. He’s still on the outs with Trump, who has been calling him a leaker for weeks, though the president described Bannon as a good person on Tuesday.

They spoke by phone on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, according to a source with knowledge of the calls, but the response to Charlottesville has been all Trump, and Trump at his purest.

On the phone to Bannon, Trump asked his chief strategist “where does it end?” according to a source with knowledge of their conversations.
Trump wasn’t referring to the white supremacists, but to the counter-protesters whom the president believes are on a slippery slope towards “changing history” by tearing down monuments of Confederate heroes and potentially, he has said, the Founding Fathers like George Washington, who owned slaves.

Bannon, who is in New York today, has a view of Trump’s Charlottesville response that horrifies many of his West Wing colleagues:

Unlike some of Trump’s other top aides — who have varied on a spectrum between frustration and disgust since the president’s Charlottesville remarks — Bannon has unapologetically supported Trump’s instinct to apportion blame to “both sides.”

Sources who’ve spoken with Bannon since Charlottesville say he views this moment as analogous to the campaign moment when Hillary Clinton condemned half of Trump’s supporters to a “basket of deplorables.”

Bannon believes that if Trump condemned all the people who protested the pulling down of the Robert E. Lee statue then he’d fall into a trap set by leftists, the establishments of both parties, and the mainstream media. (Some of Bannon’s colleagues say this is an absurd argument. They point out it was a crowd of white supremacists holding tiki torches and chanting racist slogans, and that this is no time for the president to be searching for the “fine people” in the group. They say Trump should be condemning the tiki torch crowd unequivocally and leaving the debate over statues and free speech to another, less racially-heated, day.)

Bottom line: Both Trump and Bannon are of one mind, and, within the White House at least, theirs is a minority view. They saw the backlash to Charlottesville as an example of political correctness run amok and instinctively searched for “their” people in that group of protesters. Bannon has told associates that Trump, on Tuesday afternoon, took it to the next level for the country by asking where does it end? He especially loved Trump’s line: “I wonder, is it George Washington next week?”

It’s almost impossible to disagree with Bannon. The firestorm of hate directed at Trump on Twitter came heavily from bots. The media is going to challenge Trump no matter what he says. The bought and paid for neocon RINOs are going to stab Trump in the back when they can get away with it by having the media cover for them.

Fake News? Black Fox News Chatterbox Claims Death Threats, Goes to Media Instead of Police

EBONI K. WILLIAMS. DEFINITELY CREAM IN HER COFFEE.

Ugh! All that chatter all day long on Fox News. Who knows how many thousands of mostly worthless words are uttered in the low value opinions offered on TV.

The chatterbox named Eboni K. Williams took on a familiar role on Fox: Blame whitey. Just like (((Krauthammer))) did.

I’ve bolded the last paragraph to show an example of inferior thinking abilities. None of these fools on TV are worth listening to, excerpt maybe Tucker and possibly Hannity. I’d rather watch Styx, Molyneaux, and for fun, Dice, on youtube.

You can watch Eboni’s video here.

Variety

Eboni K. Williams had never received anything like the responses she garnered after she aired her grievances with President Trump while on-air on “The Fox News Specialists.”

The co-host addressed Trump on Monday in her “Eboni’s Docket” segment, which she writes herself, berating him for failing to specify white nationalist groups in his condemnation of the violence that occurred at Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. She told Variety in an interview on Wednesday that her personal website, which usually receives an average of 10-15 emails after each segment, was inundated with over 150 emails, only three of which were anything other than “seething, scathing” takedowns.

“I should meet my maker soon, I shouldn’t be allowed to walk the streets of New York,” she cited as some examples of the type of comments she received. “They heard that I live in Harlem — Harlem needs to watch out.” Her book publisher became so concerned that he asked her to request additional security from Fox News, which she did — Williams is now escorted to and from the building when she arrives to work. Her book, “Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance, and Success,” is available next month.

Williams explained that the typical responses she gets from Fox News viewers, while sometimes disagreeing with her views, often praise her ability to formulate her arguments and present them on-air, which is what makes this week’s digression so shocking for her. She chalked up the new level of vitriol directed at her as partly due to President Trump’s “tacit compliance” of violent political rhetoric, which she said was apparent in his Tuesday morning retweet — now deleted — of an image of a train running over someone with the CNN logo edited in over them.

“When you don’t speak out and condemn, that’s tacit compliance in my book,” she said. “So whether President Trump approves of it actually, or actually wants it, I think is irrelevant because what we know is that these people think they are acting on behalf of the President of the United States.” She added that the retweet was “typical and unfortunately expected” and that while it is protected free speech, it does little to help the situation.

“It flies in the face of what I hoped would be a better day post-Congressman Steve Scalise’s shooting, where for two seconds, everybody said, ‘Let’s do better, let’s do better, we can disagree, but let’s stop with the violent political rhetoric,’ and, really, what becomes violent political action.”

Williams reiterated her “Docket” belief that Trump’s supporters will never turn on him, and added that she thinks that’s where his power to call out the behavior that resulted in Heather Heyer’s death lies. “I truly believe what he said, that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and they will stand by him,” she said. “So I think that empowers him to actually forcefully reject and speak directly to the fears and the anger that’s driving this level of violence and white supremacy and Nazism, I think he can actually speak it down in an aggressive way and they will still support him.”

Williams is a registered independent and voted for Obama, who she has nevertheless openly criticized in the past. Williams compared Obama’s stance on violence in Chicago to Trump’s stance now. “While I think President Obama was uniquely positioned as a black man and the leader of the free world in that moment to speak to those black males in Chicago in a way I would have better appreciated, it’s a similar thing with President Trump right now,” she said. “He’s a white male that represents…the patriarchal, white male dominant structure, so he could speak to white America in a way that Obama never could.”

Many of Williams’ critics took issue with their perception that she didn’t address the role of the counter-protesters in the violence that occurred at Charlottesville in her “Docket” speech. “I don’t think they were at fault because they didn’t drive a car into a crowd of people and kill Heather Heyer,” Williams said. “That was one individual that self-identified as a white nationalist and Nazi. To even have an analysis beyond that is irresponsible.”

This one might as well work for CNN. She and Don Lemon might hit it off. Oh, I forgot. He’s a queer, isn’t he?

As to all of this business about feeling threatened, as Harry Truman once said, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

What Does Ben Shapiro Know that We Don’t?

Ben Shapiro is a conservative Jewish author and the editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire news website.

And for that matter, what does Trump’s friend Sean Hannity know that we don’t?

Seth Rich? Hillary Clinton? Obama? Pizzagate? 9/11 truth? Kennedy assassination truth? UFO truth? Charlottesville truth? North Korea?

Charlottesville Leader Jason Kessler Exposed as Deep State Stooge

JASON KESSLER. FORMER LEFTIST LOON. STILL IS?

Jason Kessler, the man behind the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, has been exposed as a former Obama supporter and a leftist Occupy member.

In the video below, Kessler recites a poem he wrote called “White Devils”. He expresses anti-Christian and anti-white views in the short video.

Suspicion is growing that the Nazis at the rally were paid agitators, hired by the left to start trouble with the paid leftist Antifa members.

Market Ticker

What if it’s all a scam?

What if Jason Kessler isn’t really a right-wing extremist?

What if Jason Kessler used to be involved with Occupy Wall Street and was a strong Obama supporter — right up until, quite-literally to the day, Trump won the election?

What if he’s nothing more than a stooge?

In other words, what if Jason Kessler is just a plain old-fashioned *******-for-hire?

Hmmmm…..

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

May I remind you that The Southern Poverty Law Center, the source of the above, is thought of as a fairly hard-left organization. In other words, it’s extremely unlikely they’d try to smear this guy with an unwarranted claim that he was involved with a hard-left cause! Yet there’s the accusation that he was formerly associated with Occupy, a socialist (if not communist) cause that was about as diametrically opposed to the KKK or “alt-right” as one can imagine.

Further, nearly all of the SPLC’s documented incidents of his “hard right” behavior appear to date to just after and beyond the 2016 elections.

Hmmmm….

Again folks: What if all — or at least most — of Charlottesville was manufactured by people operating through paid stooges with the explicit intent of fomenting violence — or worse?

One of the “intended speakers” for that event, I note (no idea if he actually spoke) is someone who has apparently stated that he’d like to see a second Civil War in America.

And finally, what if — just what if — Trump knew of this jackass’ history when he said that the hate and violence was present “on many sides”?

What if Trump is right and this entire incident was basically manufactured, seeking and utilizing paid stooges to set up a volatile situation which the police not only allowed to turn bad but they appear to have had a hand in intentionally stoking the violent behavior of those present by chasing off the so-called alt-right folks right into the much-larger Antifa crowd?

Oh, sure, the people who were beaten and died still were beaten and died and everyone involved in that — on both sides — needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But it matters quite a bit, I suspect, if the so-called “Nazis” involved in this were paid Nazis — that is, stooges paid to show up, put on a “uniform” with some sort of “identity” and start trouble. Further, one must ask: Why were the cops told to stand down, who gave that order along with the order to force the original protesters into the waiting maw of the counter-protesters and what sort of political affiliation does everyone involved in that decision hold?

The job of the police when there are demonstrations (which are lawful, permit or no permit) and counter-demonstrators show up is to keep the two sides apart. Let them scream at each other across a street if they want; free speech is important, and to be protected.

Intentionally forcing one of the demonstrating groups into and through the opposing group is a felony criminal act and when done by a police officer or officers is a rank violation of federal law — specifically, 18 USC 242 which makes it a criminal act to deprive anyone in the United States of their lawful Constitutional Rights under power of law or authority.

Maybe there are a few more (serious) criminal charges that need to be filed than would first appear to be necessary…..

World Net Daily has picked up the story and is asking the same questions.

But before Kessler organized “Unite the Right” rally, it appears he was a fan of President Obama, President Clinton, gun control, Occupy Wall Street, Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and other leftist causes.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, an extreme leftist group that’s hostile to conservatives, reported that Kessler appears to have a history of leftist activism and only expressed a “rightward shift” in November 2016 – around the time of President Trump’s election.

I wonder how much George Soros paid this mole, if these stories are true.

Kessler defends himself in the WND piece. I think his defense is a lie. Soros likely paid him to join the Trump Train to sabotage it by starting a race war.

Vdare Conference Terminated by Colorado Resort, Site Paypal Cancelled

CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN RESORT. HATES PATRIOTS.

The more they f*ck us over, the more determined I become. We are like iron being forged in the fire, becoming steel in the process. That steel shall be used to make many swords.

That which does not kill us, makes us stronger. One day they will regret their short-sited un-American actions.

The Denver Channel

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A conference of white supremacists and their sympathizers scheduled for April 2018 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort has been canceled, the organization and resort confirmed Wednesday.

The cancelation came a day after Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers denounced white supremacy and said the city wouldn’t “provide any support or resources” to the event.

“The city remains steadfast in its commitment to the enforcement of Colorado law, which protects all individuals regardless of race, religion, color, ancestry, national origin, physical or mental disability, or sexual orientation to be secure and protected from fear, intimidation, harassment and physical harm,” Suthers said further in a Tuesday statement.

He added that the city “does not have the authority to restrict freedom of speech” or to tell private businesses which events they are allowed to host.

“That said,” he added, “I would encourage local businesses to be attentive to the types of events they accept and the groups they invite to our great city.”

By Wednesday morning, the conference had been canceled altogether.

“Unfortunately, the conference has been cancelled. Registered attendees will receive a refund,” a message on the organization’s conference page read.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort issued a statement saying it “will not be hosting the VDARE Foundation in April of next year.”

“We remain committed to respecting the privacy of guests at the resort,” said spokeswoman Guadalupe Hirt.

When reached by phone, VDARE.com’s editor, Peter Brimelow, said he would be issuing a statement later Wednesday. He describes his website and group as one focused on “patriotic immigration reform.”

Also notable Wednesday on VDARE’s website was a large notice on its front page saying PayPal had cut ties with VDARE.com.

“We were given no reasons, so are left to speculate why we’ve been suddenly purged,” Brimelow wrote. “Best guess: the Charlottesville debacle – in which VDARE.com played no part, either in planning, promoting, or appearing – is being used as an excuse for the authoritarian Communist Left to punish anyone who disagrees with their anti-American violence against patriotic people.”

Jason Kessler, the man who organized the rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville over the weekend, is a contributing writer on the website, and on June 19, published an article on the website titled “Yes, Virginia, There Is Such A Thing As White Genocide.”

Also scheduled to appear had been former U.S. Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado, who most recently failed in quests for Colorado’s governorship and the U.S. presidency.

Brimelow went on to say in the post about PayPal: “It is impossible to predict on what level we will be attacked next. We must have the resources to defend ourselves and our people.”

PETER BRIMELOW.

It’s obvious that the Mayor threatened the resort with all sorts of health code and safety violations. Don’t blame them. Blame the POS mayor.

Ghetto Lottery: Nibber Who Claims to Have Been Beaten by White Supremacists Raises $147K in 3 Days

JAMES FIELDS. NO DEFENSE.

Following the events in Charlottesville on Saturday, everybody took to the Internet to try to raise money. At least one Nigger hit the jackpot. Meanwhile, so did the family of dead mudshark Heather Heyer from what I’ve been seeing.

White people who donate to our enemies are traitors as far as I’m concerned.

I couldn’t find info on the Nog who’s getting rich quick, but I believe he’s the ape with a bat who attacked our people in Charlottesville on Saturday. That’s the fight that ended up in the parking garage. Again, the Nog started the fight and our people finished it.

Meanwhile True Pundit reports that sites are pulling fundraising to provide the accused Charlottesville killer a defense.

Excerpt:

Supporters of Fields, and his actions, are no longer able to donate to certain pages advocating for the alleged murderer because of GoFundMe, one of the two most popular crowdfunding companies. The site purged several pages with the goal of raising money for Fields, citing its terms and conditions, which forbid any campaigns that advocate for hate speech and violence.

“We have removed multiple campaigns for James Fields and we will continue to do so if other campaigns are created. Those campaigns did not raise any money and they were immediately removed,” Bobby Whithorne, director of strategic communications at GoFundMe, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We don’t tolerate the promotion of hate or intolerance of any kind, and if a campaign violates GoFundMe’s terms of service, we’ll remove it from the platform. We’ll continue to enforce our terms of service for all campaigns across the site.”

Kickstarter says it also has similar policies related to hate speech and any projects promoting it, but has not yet detected any such pages, including ones related to Fields.
